Most armies have a "bear jacket" of some kind, so do the Dutch. These clothes are often made of a teddy fabric, which can be inverted for a friendly grizzly-like look. Unlike many other thermal clothes, these KL shirts were made to be Flame Resistant. Moreover the Dutch version is made mostly of wool!

Most armies have a "bear jacket" of some kind, so do the Dutch. These clothes are often made of a teddy fabric, which can be inverted for a friendly grizzly-like look. Unlike many other thermal clothes, these KL shirts were made to be Flame Resistant. Moreover the Dutch version is made mostly of wool!

Although undeniably warm and comfy, thermal shirts don't look nearly as sharp as a proper woolly pully. Instead their strength is in the high collar and front zipper, which make them more functional in cold weather maneuvres. A shirt like this is just the stuff you want to wear under a shell parka!

Front closure and two pockets with high-quality zippers. Thumb-loops at the cuffs.

Size info

The four first digits of the NATO-size represents user height and the latter four mean chest circumference. For example, 7585 means 175-185 cm (5' 9" - 6' 1") and 0510 is abbreviated from 105-110 cm (41.4" - 43.5"). We wrote these in full length in the size selection to make things easier.

The height range is very large for some reason. In our opinion the 160-180 cm (5' 3" - 5' 11") shirt is more suitable on a 175-180 cm (5' 9" - 5' 11") wearer, so choose a size where you're in the upper third of the suggested range. Obviously, our arms vary in length and people have different tastes about sleeve length.

The widths are somewhat generous so picking your exact size will be a baggy fit. These are smaller at the top so fear not if you have a belly.

Here's a rough conversion of the sizes to easier ones.

Material and care

80 % wool, 20 % polyester, cuffs 100 % polyester knit. All fibres have been modified to be Flame Resistant. Delicate wash at 30 degrees Celsius (86 F) and hang-dry.

Dutch army surplus

The shirts have seen hard use and it shows. They are in one piece and clean, but the level of furryness varies, probably because washing instructions were not followed along the way.

Made by various contractors, such as Arwy, Seyntex, Helly Hansen etc.. These are not sorted.

Great bit of kit and makes a great addition to your insulation layers. Much better then synthetic fleeces in my exprience as it's much warmer, doesn't stink and is fuzzier. It's not too thick so I wouldn't depend on it as your only insulation layer and it doesn't stop wind but as part of a system it works great it also doesn't pack down very much. Also the pockets are superb as they are double lined so you will keep your hands super warm. Perfect for going underneither a Gorka.

I'd not recomend washing them at all just hang them up. If you wash it, it will probably go all weird.

Very comfy bit of shirt, recived the Helly Hansen one, just one problem i noticed and that was lack of wool! All the labels still intakt!Made from 80% Polyamide and 20% Polyester So I got an non wool shirt!

I received the bear shirt within 4 days from the order.
The condition of the item is very good for a surlpus and the size 6080/0005 just right, although i usually wear xxl, with extra room for more layers.
Thank you for the free DHL shipment !

I bought it not to ruin my supergood-technical-expensive fleeces delivering papers in the night. Very warm and comfortable. Great value for the money.

Ordered one to fit my 42" (106cm) chest. Re-read and description that it's slightly over-sized and contacted customer service to down-size mine before it shipped. It fits fine over a base and mid layer.
The jacket is 80% wool per the description. A name (previous owner) is written on the tag which also has '2008' printed on it.
The jacket is heavy with a shag interior and a smoother exterior with some fuzz due to use, but is still serviceable. As it's not merino wool, it's scratchy but no one is going to wear it over bare skin.
The zipper only has a single slider so it won't be able to be unzipped from the bottom for shorter folks to sit comfortably. The slider seems a bit undersized but so far it works well.
A good purchase and it will be great if you can snag one that's unused.

You think you can't possibly own any more surplus jumpers and fleeces...and then Varusteleka fill the need you didn't know you had. Go with your normal size because it will fit over other layers, such as the excellent Särma field shirt and a gilet, and under a smock without being bulky. A good choice for Nordic countries in Summer when it can get damp and cold on the mountains, and one needs several thin layers to fend off the moild.
Featuring the usual super Dutch quality and Leka product selection which we have long ago taken for granted, of course.

Omani on hankittu muualta. Hyvä ja lämmin pörröpaita. Olen 185cm pitkä ja rinnanympärys on noin 100-105cm, 8000-9500 koko on oikein hyvä, pari numeroa kapeampikin olisi varmasti sopinut jos haluaisi ihan vartalonmyötäisen. Tässä koossa itselleni hihat ovat oikein hyvän pituiset vaikka käyttäisi peukalonreikiäkin, ja helma peittää perseen. Todella mukava päällä ja kaulus on sen verran korkea ja napakka että kaulahuiviakaan ei välttämättä tarvi.

Valoa vasten katsottuna todella harvaa kudosta eli luulisi hengittävänkin erinomaisesti. Omani on Fecsan (Arwy) valmistama ja tässä on vetoketju kauluksen kohdalla jännästi pari senttiä hieman sivussa. Yksilö ei vaikuta niin käytetyltä että se olisi jotenkin sellaiseksi venynyt tai kiertynyt, luulen että se on ihan tarkoituksella tehdy näin ettei vetoketju hankaa suoraan leuanpäähän? Kuvassa jossa on kolme eri paitaa, vasemman reunan yksilössä näyttäisi ehkä olevan samalla tavalla.

Hyvin lämmin ja istuva fleece. Monen fleece omistajana sanoisin että tämä lämpimämmästä päästä mutta negana sanoisin että vähiten tuulta pitävä. Takahelma on parhautta

Lämmin paita ja sopivan kodittoman näkönen, olematta kuitenkaan ruma. Omani on Helly Hansenin valmistama näköjään.
